Answer:2/3 feet.

Step-by-step explanation:The formula for finding the area of a triangle is

A = (B x H)/2. Or, area is equal to base times height, all divided by two. In your case, we don’t know the base. If wesubstitutein values, we get2/5 = (B x 6/5)/2.Next, we have to multiply both sides by two, to cancel the “/2.” That results in

4/5 = B x 6/5. Then,to isolate the variable, we have todivide both sides by 6/5.4/5 ÷ 6/5 is 4/5 x 5/6. The fives cancel out, and we are left with 4/6.Finally, we simplify! 4/6 simplifies to

2/3.
